Q: What did the traffic light say to the tomato crossing?
A: “Don’t look now, I’m changing”
Back to our normal schedule of delivering fruits and veggies every Wednesday to our fabulous Travis teachers, staff and parents. This Wednesday, January 4th at 9PM is the deadline to order your veggies for next week. We will be on early dismissal hours next Wednesday from 12:30PM to 2PM.

If you have the time, trek the kiddos over to Central City Co-op and check out where your veggies are coming from at 2515 Waugh in the Grace Lutheran Church from 9AM-6PM.

Easy Kid-Friendly Green Smoothie Recipe
1 (or 2) fresh organic bananas
2 cups frozen or fresh organic strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, mangoes, kiwi (really whatever berries/fruit you have available – we love to mix and match)
1 – 3 cups (or as much as you can get away with) fresh organic kale, chard, mustard greens, dandelion greens, spinach, or any other greens – make sure you have a strong blender. Vitamix does an awesome job with hearty greens.
1 cup (or more to taste) organic Plain Kefir or yogurt made from any dairy or non-dairy milks (Cow, goat, coconut, rice, soy – all will work) or organic orange juice
1 cup Filtered Water
1/2 cup Apple Cider, preferably organic (during fall and winter you can get some delicious fresh-pressed cider from local Farmer’s Markets)
OPTIONAL 2 – 3 Tbsp Ground Chia, Hemp, or Flax Seeds
OPTIONAL 1- 2 Tbsp RAW honey (full of vital enzymes)
1. Throw in the bananas, berries/fruit choices, greens, kefir/yogurt, apple cider, water, ground seeds, and raw honey. If you are not using any frozen fruit, you should probably add some crushed ice to make it nice, cold, and refreshing!
2. Blend all together for about a minute, or until really creamy and smooth! You can add more liquid (kefir, organic juice, or water) to whatever your desired consistency is.
